Rated R; 80 minutes; 1993
Horror master Sam Raimi delivers another visual tour-de-force in this outrageously comic sword-and-sorcery fantasy about an innocent 20th century man (Bruce Campbell) hurtled back to the Dark Ages. In a hilariously macabre tug-of-war between the living and the walking dead (courtesy of spectacular special effects), Campbell relies on his unreliable chainsaw, aging 12-gauge shotgun, and a beat up 88 Olds to battle demonic forces and return to his own time.
